Congress has a historic opportunity to show climate leadership by including major climate investments in the upcoming reconciliation package. To succeed, they must include:

  • a strong Clean Electricity Standard
  • targeted investments in environmental justice and frontline communities
  • an end to fossil fuel subsidies, and
  • a Civilian Climate Corps creating good jobs
